FOOD | Cabbagetown Festival of the Arts
Cabbagetown Festival of the Arts hosts a pre-party of sorts with One Night in Cabbagetown, a food-tasting neighbourhood gallivant. Purchase a $10 ticket and access four different restaurants from a list of ten, sampling their food and drinking their booze. Explore the neighbourhood so you'll be well acquainted with Cabbagetown when the festival begins on Saturday. Festivities run until 11PM tonight.
Parliament Street and surrounding area 7PM $10
ART | fART: A Show About Food + Art
Mix food and art together and you get fART, the OCAD U first student showcase of the new school year. A visual feast that marries the obsession of food with art, over 25 artists gather their works that see measure and examine the human relationship with food. Bring an appetite and a good pair of shoes because naturally there will be samplings and music.
OCAD U Student Gallery (52 McCaul Street) 7PM Free
ART | Aimless
Letting go and losing track is what Scott Boniface hopes Moniker Gallery's visitors will do when his show Aimless opens in the Richmond Street space tonight. All of the abstract and mix medium creations Boniface has created for the show are pieces that he himself has become lost in while creating, getting lost in the colours and textures of the works. Stop in or wander aimlessly by Moniker tonight or until September 11th, where Boniface's exhibit will be on display daily from 11AM-5PM.
Moniker Gallery (452 Richmond Street West) 7PM Free
